Sometime before the November election, MoDOT will release a list of projects they that would be included should a proposed tax increase on the ballot pass.
The best guess seems to be "corridor improvements along I-70, new I-44 interchanges at Hampton Avenue, Kingshighway, Vandeventer, Grand and Jefferson, and improvements to the I-270 corridor from St. Charles Rock Road to Route H."
On the other hand comes this argument from other regional leaders: "We really have nothing to gain, at this point, from more highway expenditures. I think we have a lot to gain, both city and county, from building a better public transportation network."
"If the tax passes: this the first chance MoDOT will have had to invest in other modes of transportation and their high priority list is really just very focused on highways. I think that's not what voters in St. Louis City and St. Louis County are asking for from MoDOT these days."
Quite true. I'd love to see a more seamless rail system across the region with no gaps and lapses in many areas. Get on the Metro anywhere and get to most anywhere else like other cities have.
